Mountain Ride
Mountain Ride is a Pennsylvania bluegrass band fancying both progressive and traditional facets.
The Stonethrowers
The Stonethrowers have been captivating audiences in and around Philadelphia for over ten years with their own brand of Americana music. Acoustic songwriting at its heart, The Stonethrowers feature country and bluegrass instruments unrestrained by a desire to hew too closely to tradition. Their performances showcase multiple lead singers with great vocal expression and seamlessly blended three-part vocal harmonies to fill out an energetic delivery. With the release of their newest album, Kissed By The Blue (2018), The Stonethrowers continue to push the bounds of their own expression, adding a second songwriter to the band for the first time. In addition to new members Willy Lebowitz (mandolin, vocals) and Bobby Baxmeyer (banjo, vocals), the band is anchored by: Marc Silver (guitar, vocals), Mike Hlatky (bass, vocals), and Isaac Stanford (pedal steel, dobro). The Stonethrowers are excited to present this new material to audiences far and wide.
The Cheddar Boys
The Cheddar Boys have been playing around Philly over the past 8 years. Huston, on banjo and lead vocals, is a busker at heart and over the years formed a ragtag group playing mostly traditional old-time tunes with a fast percussive core.
